Inter will have increased room for manoeuvre in the transfer market next summer after their Financial Fair Play agreement with UEFA terminates in June, according to sporting director Piero Ausilio.
The Nerazzurri have been working under tight restrictions from European football’s governing body since club president Erick Thohir signed a ‘Settlement Agreement’ with them in 2015, which has severely limited Inter’s ability to spend on recruitment and forced them to sell off the majority of their academy players.
However the three-year agreement – which was extended for a further twelve months during the summer, when a UEFA report concluded that Inter had only “partially met” the financial targets they had been set – is due to end on 30 June 2019.
Speaking to reporters on Thursday, Ausilio explained that while the club will not be able to make too many moves in the upcoming January transfer window, they should be able to act more freely from July onwards.
“The January transfer window is still part of this accounting season, so we won’t be able to benefit from the revenue we’re receiving from the Champions League,” he said.
“However as we are about to exit our Settlement Agreement we should have greater room for manoeuvre from next season.
“It’s not as if Financial Fair Play will disappear, because we will still have to abide by its regulations like all other European clubs, but we should leave the Settlement Agreement which has placed plenty of restrictions on us over the past few years.”
